This is a must if you really want the goods on the town of Jerome. We really enjoyed it. Listen to the "ghost" video, and it will enlighten you as to a little of what it must of been like. Interesting. I really enjoyed it. The views are spectacular.

My husband and I took a self guided tour of this mansion while on vacation in Jerome. There is a lovely video in a back room that tells you the history of the town. I highly recommend visiting!

The Douglas Mansion, also known as Jerome State Historic Park, offers a good overview of the history of mining in and around quirky, hilly Jerome. A diorama offers a 3D view of the two major mines, while the photos, artifacts and exhibits chronicle the major figures and events in Jerome's history. A 30-minute film is well worth seeing. Perched on... More

The mansion houses the historic mining museum of the town of Jerome. Watch the video for the history of the town. A must see for travelers to Jerome.

The mansion is not the highlight of this museum, as it is a mining museum. However, there are many interesting things to see in this museum and it is certainly worth a stop on your way into or out of Jerome. Apparently, you can visit the building at the end of the driveway, although we did not realize this until... More

His mine was called the Little Daisy Mine. Mr. Douglas designed the house to be a home for his family as well as a hotel for mining officials and investors. As... More

This was an interesting place. Appreciate that the mansion is largely untouched, with a mix of original furnishings and other historical items from the history of Jerome.

The introductory video is a well-done presentation of the founders, profiteers, and the tough working class citizens of Jerome's historical past; great written information, pictures, and artifacts both inside and on the grounds that really bring the unbelievably hard lives and tenacity of the people and this town to life. Highly recommend this as a first stop; spend several hours.

I happened to stop by before making my way into the actual town of Jerome. It really helped me find my way around and decide what I wanted to do once I got into town.
